“Help, how do I explain this reading comprehension?” : A case study of how a teacher’s speech act develop pupils’ reading comprehension (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to identify and analyse how different communicative acts are used in the teaching of reading comprehension in grade 3. The study is based on five video recordings of the teaching of reading comprehension with a teacher using the common Swedish teaching model known as “läsfixare”. The empirical data have been analysed through systematic studies and interpreted on the basis of six different speech acts with the aid of a recording schema in the form of a checklist. The theory that is the premise for this study is chiefly based on Searle’s research (1979) on different communicative speech acts, but also on Vargas’s research (2013) on the use of speech acts in the classroom. The study shows that the teacher uses all six speech acts: instruct, request, confirm, exemplify, apply and explain. These are chiefly used in combination with each other and reinforced with the aid of body language. The study also shows the relationship between the function of the speech acts in teaching and the choice of “läsfixare” figures. Through increased awareness of the use of speech acts, teachers can be more effective in their teaching of reading comprehension and develop pupils’ reading comprehension.
